The Next Big Thing by Ginny Michaels

I heard this phrase on a commercial while watching Victorious with my daughter and it kinda stuck.  All of us who write, I mean seriously write, hope to be the next big thing.  Yet there are those who are absolutely oozing with talent that end up being passed over.  Why?  That is the sixty-four million dollar question.

Why is it authors can write stories for years, get rave reviews, and only sell a modest amount of books, while other authors who aren’t nearly as talented are able to rise to the top?  Yes the top 100 of any book list on Amazon is filled with stories from talented authors.  Yet for just as many great stories on the top 100, there are as many poorly written, poorly edited, or obvious rip offs of bigger work that sit at the top of these best seller lists.

    Because while cream may rise to the top, but so does scum and it often ends up on top of the cream. 😉
